Oh God! At that stage of the morning where the sense of optimism kicks in and says maybe just maybe this time will be different.

The sooner the GAA bring in a tiered championship to stop these type of contests the better. Pointless exercise today, Dublin will have had harder training sessions.

Don't know if a tiered championship structure has added much to hurling. Don't see the Christy Rng etc having much prestige within hurling generally. My experience of those who would consider themselves to be from serious hurling counties is that counties involved in the lower tier championships are by and large irrelevant in the wider hurling scheme of things.

The lads dug deep.

FT in Navan.
Meath 3-15
Derry 0-08

Some turnaround. Was that by and large the same team that lined out against Kildare?

Galway 0-14 Cork 1-11

Galway lead for most of the 2nd half. Cork get three late points to lead by two. Galway score two injury time points to draw level. Cork then miss a free to win it. Draw game.

Were you at the game GBB -How did the Full back line do?

Great story and fair play to them. Had a fantastic day on Inisbofin many moons ago, cycling round the island with the sun splitting the stones. Was this not another spot Mayo tried to claim????

Twas ours originally!

Around 1830, Inishbofin passed from the possession of the Clanricards to the Browne family of Westport,[2]:23 descendants of the O'Malleys. In 1837, the island was in the Barony of Murrisk, County of Mayo, and Province of Connaught. It belonged to Howe Browne, 2nd Marquess of Sligo.[3]

Circa 1855, George Browne sold the island to Henry William Wilberforce. Cyril Allies, an English Catholic, bought it from Wilberforce in 1876, after having held it in mortgage since 1859.[9] It was eventually acquired by the Congested Districts Board for Ireland (later known as the Land Commission).[2]:23 The exact date is not known, but negotiations were "well advanced"[10] by 1910.

As of 1 February 1873, Inishbofin (as in the Civil Parish of Inishbofin which included Inishark as well) was no longer legally part of County Mayo but had become a part of County Galway.[10][11][12] this was a consequence of a severe localised famine in the winter of 1872/3 which necessitated relief be organised via the nearer Poor Law Union based in Clifden Workhouse rather than the previously responsible Poor Law Union based around Louisburgh Workhouse and in view of the particular concentration of distress in West Connemara and Inishbofin/Inishark.[12][13]

That now is an interesting bit of history!

That goal should settle Mayo.

Mayos kicking is horrible. Thet look very very nervous.

Referee isn't covering himself in glory.

Really looking forward to this. Whoever wins this, I'd love to see them go on and win Sam.

As a Kildare supporter I'm in two minds on the one hand I think our best chance would be Longford in Newbridge, but then on the other hand if we really want to see how good we are or how ready we are for D2 football next year, I wouldn't mind a crack at Mayo in Castlebar.

Think we should just sit out the next 5 years.
Pump that money into developing a lab in Dunganny to clone Graham Geraghty.

Would ye be interested in a deal with Kildare. We have a few lads from the past ourselves who could do with cloning.

We could build it around longwood. We Might get a grant.

surely the dublin man passing hand was been held back there as he tried to off load it, ending up in a throw ball? strange decision i thought

I thought the same. It wasn't so much of a throw ball as the ball falling out of the hand because he was pulled just as he tried to pass it.
